You may have been using CMC for years, or this may be your first time on the site — either way, we have a walk-through guide to get you used to CMC!
So you’ve ended up on CoinMarketCap. If you’re already an old hand at cryptocurrencies, then you know what to do — search for whatever asset or exchange you’re looking for, and see what data we are showing. For those that are new to crypto, you may have been Googling Bitcoin’s price and ended up on our homepage.
Either way — for the experienced crypto traders, and the crypto newbies — here is a guide on how to use CoinMarketCap. Because even if you’ve been with us for a while, you could still learn about a new product!
Looking at an individual cryptoasset on our homepage, you can already see several pieces of data about that asset. Namely, the cryptoasset’s market capitalization, price, 24-hour and 7-day change, volume and circulating supply. We also provide a small graph visualization so that you can see a particular cryptoasset’s trajectory over the past week.
You can scroll down, almost infinitely, on our homepage to see all of the cryptoassets that CoinMarketCap ranks — and we are always adding more!
Coin Details Pages
To learn more information about a coin, click on it to find the coin details page. One of the most important pieces of information on CMC’s coin details pages is the “market pairs” tab. Each market pair has their own confidence indicator, which helps you pick an exchange to trade your crypto. This confidence score reflects the liquidity of an exchange — the more liquidity it has, the easier it will be to trade crypto!
Each coin’s page also has its own on-chain analysis, which is hosted by IntoTheBlock, as well as a rating by Simetri by Crypto Briefing.
Cryptocurrencies, Derivatives, DeFi, Storage and Yield Farming
There are many more ways of visualizing cryptoassets than just the homepage.
If you want to search for something even more specific while remaining on the homepage, you can use the filters tab on the right-hand side.
What Else Does CMC Offer Besides Just Price Rankings?
